Aintree racecourse, Liverpool 20434_011

AINTREE RACECOURSE, Liverpool, Merseyside. Opened in 1829 for horse racing on the flat, steeplechasing was officially introduced in 1839, when the first Grand National was run at Aintree. Amongst National Hunt courses, fences such as The Chair, Canal Turn and Bechers Brook make Aintree amongst the most challenging. In the 1950s and 1960s, Aintree also hosted the British Grand Prix and the Aintree 200, a non-championship Formula 1 motor race. Alfonso de Portago is notable for competing in both the Grand National and Grand Prix at Aintree. There is a nine hole golf course within the circuit
